Such a great tour for believers and skeptics alike. Our guide, Charlie, was amazing and super informative. Loved all of the history lessons and had a good scare. A great way to see some of the darker parts of the city, and unlike anything I've ever done. Definitely recommend going for the late tour, though you'll find yourself shivering in the dark either way.

We had a lot of fun with Ian. Just the right amount of creepiness, history, and humor. Very grateful for Ian really keeping us on our toes throughout. (Un)fortunately, no poltergeist experience for any of the 8 of us.

Our guide for the night was Charlie, she was so informative, knowledgeable and engaging. She noticed my nerves from the start and actually took pleasure in my screams haha! Thankfully I never felt any ghostly activity but the stories were scary enough!
Highly recommend this tour, definitely do the night tour.

Our tour guide Charlie was amazing; very knowledgable and made the experience spooky. Really enjoyed seeing the city from underground and learning about the history of each place we visited. A ghost might've come home with me too...
